Keeping Our World Green | Joseph Merlo On Saving Our Environment

Joseph Merlo has been working toward greening the planet for over thirty years. In this series, Joseph Merlo discusses some effective ways to conserve, reuse, and recycle.

Joseph Merlo is an industrial energy conservation expert. In his professional capacity, Joseph Merlo designs facility-wide systems that significantly reduce the energy consumption and waste of large buildings. Joseph Merlo founded Energy Automation Systems, Inc., to deliver energy efficiency technology wherever it is needed worldwide. While creating energy conservation systems for industrial applications, Joseph Merlo has developed a keen eye for opportunities to save energy in other arenas.

When purchasing goods, said Joseph Merlo, buy smart. Joseph Merlo recommends shopping for long lasting appliances that save energy, preferably Energy Star rated equipment. Joseph Merlo also suggests purchasing electronics that provide good warranties. Joseph Merlo also informs readers that the semi precious minerals, metals, and plastics used to create consumer electronics are very difficult to dispose of and recycle. For this reason, Joseph Merlo suggests buying electronics that will last a long time. In this way, Joseph Merlo points out that we can avoid flooding landfills with a multitude of cheap, worthless electronics.

Joseph Merlo says to reuse things and get in the habit of purchasing reusable things. On the most basic level, adds Joseph Merlo, reusing can mean keeping scrap paper and envelopes for letters, notepaper and to make shopping lists. Ribbons and tissue paper, notes Joseph Merlo, can be reused for gift giving. Joseph Merlo adds that cardboard boxes can be saved and reused for storage and moving. Even colored paper and egg cartons, notes Joseph Merlo, can be reused for arts and crafts.

Along the same lines, continues Joseph Merlo, it is not necessary to buy new clothes every year. If replacing old clothes, notes Joseph Merlo, those old clothes are seldom worn out. What usually happens, says Joseph Merlo, is that the consumer gets tired of the old clothes and replaces them. Rather than throw them out, Joseph Merlo suggests donating them to charity organizations, friends and relatives, or consignment shops.

Joseph Merlo explains that conservation and reuse are philosophies, not products. For this reason, Joseph Merlo says it is tough sometimes for product minded consumers to get the hang of these philosophies. Joseph Merlo points out that consumers have been taught that each product and experience comes with its own disposable packaging. Joseph Merlo adds it does not have to be true that each thing a person buys creates its own junk. The philosophies of conservation and reuse, concludes Joseph Merlo, work contrary to the wasteful philosophy of American consumerism.

Energy Automation Systems Invented and Built the Energy Saving Technologies

Temple Dor Dorim, a Weston, Florida synagogue was, like other non-profits in these economic times, seeking creative ways to cut expenses to make their dollars stretch. When the synagogue discovered Energy Automation Systems’ energy saving equipment and cut electricity expenditures by almost 28 percent, it was like a gift from above.

Energy Automation Systems invented and built the energy saving technologies that helped Temple Dor Dorim. “We were amazed to find that in the initial 30 days after our work was completed, our estimated kilowatt hours per day were lowered by 27.8 percent as compared to the same month in the year before,” said Howard Chess, Executive Director at Temple Dor Dorim. “In these tightening times, whatever we can do to save money is money we can use elsewhere.”

It has become apparent that donations to non-profit organizations are not as plentiful as in the past, providing added incentive to non-profits to discover brand-new ways to save money for operations and services.

A press release on current reductions in giving to non-profits issued June 10, 2009 by the Giving USA Foundation said, in part: “The 2008 number is the first decline in giving in current dollars since 1987 and the second since Giving USA began publishing annual reports in 1956, says the annual report on philanthropy, released today for the 54th year by Giving USA Foundation.”

There are efforts by some politicians in Washington to reduce tax deductions for donations to non-profit organizations, which could adversely affect contributions even more. The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported on Sept. 23, 2009 that, “Some Senate Finance Committee members have resurrected the idea of limiting tax breaks for charitable donations as a way to raise money to overhaul the health-care system.”

With this knowledge, lowering electric bills is now more important than ever, for both economic and environmental reasons, according to Joe Merlo, Energy Automation Systems founder and chief executive officer. “Non-profits need help,” Joe Merlo said. “As our experience with Temple Dor Dorim shows, energy savings means dollar savings.”

Energy Automation Systems technologies are used in conjunction with a facility’s entire electrical system, thus delivering guaranteed energy savings. Energy Reductions Solutions, Inc. was the Energy Automation Systems affiliate that oversaw the project for Temple Dor Dorim, and after investigating its electrical systems Energy Reductions Solutions was able to guarantee a 15 percent energy cost reduction if Energy Automation Systems technologies were installed.

“The actual savings was close to 28 percent, but if it had not achieved the 15 percent savings, the difference would have been paid through our guarantee, backed by Lloyd’s of London,” Merlo added. Energy Automation Systems technologies have a 20-to-30-year lifecycle, and purchase and installation costs can be recovered through energy savings.”

As Mr. Chess of Temple Dor Dorim said, “We expected that the savings on our electric bill would be greater than our lease payments. Based upon our current results it appears we will exceed expectations.”

According to Joe Merlo, this kind of energy reduction goes to the bottom line of non-profit and religious organizations. “These individuals and their organizations are doing important work that affects, improves and uplifts the lives of the people they touch,” said Merlo. “Energy Automation Systems can help them achieve bigger and better results through energy conservation and savings, and we’re proud of that.”
